Important COVID-19 update: To protect the health and safety of our patients and families, Texas Children’s Pediatrics will be reaching out in the coming days to reschedule well-child visits for children five years of age or older. If you have an appointment scheduled in the next 30 days, please expect a phone call from your Texas Children’s Pediatrics office. TCP physicians continue to be available by appointment, by phone and by MyChart. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this rescheduling may cause.
Texas Children’s Pediatrics highly encourages you to limit visitors to one individual over 18 years of age. To help protect our patients and staff – if at all possible – we ask that you not bring siblings, children or other visitors younger than 18 years of age. Please know, we are here to care for any patient who needs us.  Additionally, all patients and visitors will be subject to screening upon arrival. For more information, visit texaschildrenscoronavirus.org.

Thank you for choosing Texas Children's Pediatrics East. Our practice provides family-supportive pediatric care.

Community Cares Program

As part of its goal to build a community of healthy children, Texas Children's Pediatrics Community Cares Program provides trusted, high-quality pediatric medical services for children who otherwise would seek care from emergency rooms or possibly go without care or treatment due to low family incomes and/or lack of health insurance. Regardless of the family’s financial situation, the Community Cares Program provides healthcare to children from birth to age 18 and offers the opportunity to develop a trusting, long-term relationship with a board certified pediatrician.

Billing Information

Payment for medical services can be made by cash, personal check or credit card and is due at the time of service. It is the parent or guardian's responsibility to pay any deductible, co-pay or co-insurance required by the insurance provider. As a courtesy, our office will file claims with any of our Texas Children's Pedatrics-contracted insurance plans. Please bring your insurance card to every visit.
